In this day and age where everyone and their uncle has a digital camera, pinhole cameras are something of a backward step in the evolution of cameras. Nevertheless, Slovenian woodworker Elvis Halilović has created a series of nifty-looking pinhole cameras using nothing but wood and magnets. They even come in six different dimensions and film sizes to suit various photographic preferences. Pinhole cameras rely solely on the action of light on raw film. No lenses, no fancy filters, no electronics involved. One can predict to a certain degree how the photograph will turn out, but it’s the irregularities in the final results that gives the photographer a pleasant surprise.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
